Full Text

The home of Mr. and Mrs. Edmond Hunter, Fairview Avenue, was the scene of a very happy anniversary of the birth of the latter's grandmother, Mrs. Louisa Walker of Walker's Point, Muskoka, who was 82 years old on Sunday, May 2nd.

A turkey dinner was served to 30 relatives present from Toronto, St. Catharines, Owen Sound and the United States. A presentation of an electric tea kettle was made to the grand young lady for use at the 4 o'clock pastime at her summer cottage in Muskoka.

The immediate family at the head table were Mr. and Mrs. Harper Walker, Toronto; Mrs. Lilly Jackson, Toronto; Mrs. Walter Lambert, Owen Sound; Mrs. Roy Walker, Walker's Point, Muskoka; Mr. Chas. Walker, Sharon, Penn., U.S.A.; Mr. and Mrs. Ray Forbes, Toronto; Mr. and Mrs. Vern Galway, St. Catharines.

The only daughter unable to be present, Mrs. Thos. Schell, Gravenhurst, was represented by her two daughters, Arla and June, of Toronto. There were 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren joining in the festivities.

The youngest great grandchild, Miss Wendy Lou Curtis, Grimsby, was very reluctant to pose for pictures with her great grandmother, who is 80 years her senior.

The high esteem in which Mrs. Walker is held was expressed by the many cards of congratulations she received from many parts of Canada and the United States.

Many summer vacationists from Grimsby who spend their leisure time at Walker's Point will be pleased to know that Grandma (as she is known to most) is in the best of health and very active, and will meet them again in Muskoka this summer. May she be spared to be with us for many more such anniversaries.
